Ashton Court was great, one of our friends brought a couple of his friends from Brighton, we'll call them Jim and Bob because I can't remember their actual names. Jim and Bob were great value, they drank a bottle of Captain Morgan spiced Rum each, and were extremely, comically drunk. As they were Ollie's friends I felt free to be amused by them without feeling the burden of responsibility I would have felt if they were my friends, which made losing Bob at some point on the long trek from the festival to the entrance of the Ashton Court estate somewhat easier to bear.

It was Bob's first time in Bristol and he didn't have any money or a phone, and didn't know Ollie's or any one else's address or phone number, silly, silly Bob. We made token looking for him gestures but a free party was calling and none of us were in the right frame of mind for serious and sensible things, so we left Ollie and Jim to it. Mean, I know... They gave up an hour after we left, but were reunited with Bob after a kebab shop owner in Bedminster found him trying the doors of various cars in the vague hope that one of them might be his to curl up and sleep in, and Bob managed to remember Jim's phone number...the lesson to be learned here is: don't get drunk in a strange city without first tethering yourself to a trusted friend.

After Glade and Ashton Court some detox was needed, so we had a low key weekend of buying cheese at the harbour festival French market on Friday evening followed by Batman Begins and cheese eating (I was far less scared by the Scarecrow on the little screen; in the cinema Miranda and I nearly fainted) and then had our respective parents round for dinner on Saturday night. We spent the WHOLE day Saturday cleaning the house, and it was very lovely in the end.

In three days we fly to Jamaica!

I bought the biggest creme brulee in the world (it serves six! It's the people carrier of the creme brulee world!) from Marks and Spencer's and had lots of it at 8 o'clock this morning, now I feel ill.

Tonight, as the neighbours on both sides are away, Matt and I are having a karaoke session where we're the only singers. We've been making set-lists all week and have to mark each other out of 10, it's going to be great, Matt bought a Beegees album specially.
